    macrophylla x ampullaria red form
    A carpet of smaller pitchers with teeth would always be nice

    edwardsiana x ventricosa dark red
    An easy to grow red toothed pitcher

    macrophylla x Predator
    why not? Predator is inter-low and crossed to a wide red toothed form would make interesting inter-climate forms.


    But I'm not into the toothed stuff, more interesting form.

    N. argentii x ampullaria red
    N. ampullaria red x hamata
    N. ampullaria red x burbidgeae

    I think a good hybrid will be N.mirabilis echinostoma x N.villosa. Moreover between a highland and lowland species. See the imaginery photo [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    I would like to see N. rajah x veitchii, or even N. ventricosa 'red' x veitchii, or just about anything x veitchii.

    Backcrossing a hybrid to one of its parents usually gives rise to a plant very similar to the parent, so something very close to hamata would occur, I surmise.

    How about skipping the parent cross and just crossing it with a sibling, Predator x Predator?

    A couple of crosses that I have thought would be appealling are:

    truncata x clipeata - more for the leaf shape than the pitchers.

    ampullaria x gymnamphora - should produce nice tubby pithcers

    veitchii x ovata - should have a nice peristome
